    This is really a coffee table book not a book intended to help you with table settings There are some terrific photographs several good tips and some creative ideas but very low on how to The main thing that I learned from this book is that the author collects china and anything monogrammed

    I checked this book out from the library with the intention of just looking at the pictures; maybe getting a few ideas Little did I know that I would sit and read the whole book this evening This book gave me so many different ideas and even some neat uotesLook at each room not as a place with four walls but rather as a canvas for your heart and soul Constantly seek and find new sources of inspiration; accrue not only things but ideas and memoriesI believe you should surround yourself with colors you loveThat which stirs us transforms uslet those things you love do the same for all of your gracious spaces inside and outWhether a castle or a cottage your home should be a harbor not only for your body but also your soul; a place that provides shelter and solace from the rest of the worldTREAT YOURSELF LIKE A UEEN AND YOU WILL FEEL LIKE ONEThink outside the box and you will be amazed at the possibilities you can envisionI definitely recommend this book especially for those of you interested in decorating and home improvement I don't think you will be disappointed
